Open Source File Visual C++ Add-In

Environment: VC6 x86 NT4 W2K

I wrote a Visual C++ add-in that opens a file that is stored anywhere in your Visual C++ x86 "Include" path. I use it to open files such as winerror.h or header files mentioned in MSDN.

The source files were built using Visual C++ 6.0 and the Add-In wizard.

To install:

  1. Compile the OpenSourceFile.dll
  2. Click on Tools|Customize|Add-ins and Macro Files
  3. Browse and select the DLL file
  4. It will add a new toolbar

    You can achieve the same effect by typing the file name in the FindTool (find combo box in the toolbar) and hitting Ctrl-Shift-G (FileGoTo).

    This also works for opening any file contained within the active project of the current workspace.
